Demetris (the film’s director Christoforos Papakaliatis) shares his relatively normal life with a German Shepherd dog. When his canine friends begs to be walked one night, Demetris unwittingly stands on the precipice of a life-changing decision. If he goes out, he will meet Christina (Marina Kalogirou), the love of his life. If he stays at home, he will not.
"I want them [foreign audiences] to feel more supportive of Greeks [after watching this film] because, right now, the Greek people need a lot of support.
But history has shown that Greeks are always winners," says filmmaker Christoforos Papakaliatis
